I know this time of year every crafter is gearing up for the holidays – but don’t overlook Thanksgiving! Last year I put together a Thanksgiving Roundup, but I left a few patterns out, and new patterns have debuted since then. Enough to put together an all new roundup of just turkeys! These 10 crochet turkey patterns are fun, festive and free!
Plaid is one of the big fall trends this year, and crochet is trending right there beside it. And luckily for those of us with hooks and yarn (and without a trendy budget), there are plenty of free patterns that combine the two! Vintage to brand new, I’ve collected 10 free plaid crochet patterns!
The Fallen Leaves Slouch Hat was inspired by a gorgeous skein of LB Collection Baby Alpaca I received from Lion Brand Yarn. It was so soft and it just cried out to be made into a fall hat pattern. Paired with a stitch pattern of lacework diamonds that remind me of falling leaves, the Fallen Leaves Slouch Hat is the perfect hat for apple picking and pumpkin patches and all things Autumn.
Kristi Simpson is probably most well known for the super cute crochet designs on her website, RAKJpatterns, but she also runs Inspired Crochet Magazine. And like that wasn’t impressive enough, she’s also got a brand new book of patterns out: “Sweet & Simple Baby Crochet”! Moogly has joined her blog tour, and today I’ve got an interview with this busy, creative lady!
